A Cat's Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-size bed is soft and deep...
I sleep right in the center groove
My human can hardly move!
I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"
I sneak up slowly to begin
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up quickly, I have sharp teeth -
And my claws I will unsheath
For the morning's here and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs me and holds me tight
And sacrifices her bed at night.

I love this poem and had never heard it before. I was sent to me by ML(I think?!). Thanks again ML!

Thank you, ML, that is so sweet! I will copy it and send it around when I get home.

Happy Father's Day to all our Fuzz Daddies!!

Oh, Kat, you did such a great job, love the little kitty in his hammock. Glad everyone likes the poem, I think all cat owners (and dog owners, too) can relate to the part about the pet sleeping in the middle of the bed so the humans can hardly move.

I have not heard this little poem and I love it! We have two kitties (Kona and Wiley) who live by its tenets.

That's a keeper.
